Google high-end Chrome OS laptop launched; priced at $1,299

San Francisco: Google has introduced its own high-end laptop Chromebook Pixel powered by its Chrome operating system.

“With the Pixel, we set out to rethink all elements of a computer in order to design the best laptop possible, especially for power users who have fully embraced the cloud,” said Google in its official blog Thursday.

According to the search giant, Chromebook Pixel, with a 4.3-million-pixel touchscreen, has the highest pixel density of any laptop screen on the market today, reported Xinhua.

Made of anodized aluminium, the laptop also features an Intel Core i5 processor. Although the local solid-state storage is only 32 GB, consumers can get one terabyte of free cloud storage space with Google’s Drive service for three years.

The basic Wi-Fi version of the laptop will retail for USD 1,299 in the US. In April, Google will launch a model with built-in LTE with a price of USD 1,449.

Announced in July 2009, Chrome OS is an operating system designed to work exclusively with web applications. The user interface of the system only has a browser with a media player and a file manager. All the documents and applications are stored and based in the “cloud”, Google’s data centres.
